Question: I am currently taking a Birth Control pill Apri. 21 days on 7 off. I have always had acne and within the past couple of years have started having symptoms of PMDD. I have heard many good things about taking YAZ to help these symptoms. I know and understand the risks of YAZ. I am wondering if this might be recommended for me, and if Yaz (Dronis) (3mg/0.02mg) is what I would be looking for when ordering it online. I am in great health, do not smoke. 23 yrs old. I have been on BC for 8 years no issues.

Brief Answer:
Please take after evaluation.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

YAZ cannot be used if you have migraines or some heart-related problems. So, before you switch over, please make sure that you are the right candidate for this medication by undergoing a proper evaluation by a physician and a gynecologist.

It is true that this is the treatment useful in PMDD and acne. Pregnancy needs to be strictly excluded to be on this medication as it has been shown to cause birth defects. The dosage you have mentioned also is right.

Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

My sister is carrying and the growth has been confirmed to be 7 weeks now as of today. She used to have issues related to mild bleeding , because of which she was asked to take Dronis 30 Tablets for 21 days and she took it for 10 days during her 5th week of pregnancy . We did not know that she was pregnant then and we identified the same after the intake of those 10 tablets and by the time we got to know that she is pregnant we stopped the intake of the medicine immediately. Now, we are a little worried if the consumption of 10 Dronis 30 tablets will have any side effect and cause any issues related to the physical and mental growth of the child. Kindly advise.
